If We Forget Eternity

If we forget Eternity, we languish in fear, drop into despondency, break off hope and forget the Light, forget the Joy a free soul flies to when free of sickness and fear and hatred and most of all, when free of death's lonely touch. If we could see, really, really see-- then we would see this life as a moment, a single dream forgotten on awakening, till we fall asleep again and dream, dream once more...and for those who shake the darkness from their souls, bathe in the luxurious Light of Eternity, their dreaming will be done and they will have awakened for evermore....

Thanks Juliet--and True--yet many people today seem like sleepwalkers, unaware of their own souls
